The training starts with an overview of working with the Adobe Media Encoder, and how it integrates with suite mates like Premiere Pro and After Effects. The next section reviews streaming-related concepts like constant and variable bit rate encoding and then details the best practices of streaming producers, including the resolution and data rate configurations used by prominent broadcast and corporate sites.
The training then moves to specific production targets, like producing H.264 for Flash, Silverlight and HTML5, encoding for delivery to Apple iDevices, producing for DVD and Blu-ray and producing for adaptive streaming. Within each of these topics, the training reviews codec and target-specific details that explain how different configuration options impact quality, compatibility and playability.
"The training goes far beyond simply teaching how to use the Adobe Media Encoder," author Jan Ozer commented. "Viewers will learn the fundamentals of codecs and compression, and how high-profile producers are configuring their videos for streaming, distribution to devices, or for optical media. After completing the training, viewers will thoroughly understand the encoding options available in the Adobe Media Encoder and how to efficiently produce top-quality video files, whatever the target."
